Hello December, month of twinkles and glitter and stars and lights and, in our house at least, Elvis singing Christmas tunes. And gifts. Let’s not be shy here; isn’t that what it’s all about?
Well Christmas is in full swing for the G’s! Last week the mother-in-law treated myself and the sister-in-law to our first Christmas gifts – an evening of make-up and other treats at Oran Mor hosted by Rosie Mulholland.
Following a somewhat interesting ride in, and out and minor hysteria and in and out of, the elevator we made it to the private dining room for a DIY masterclass featuring an eclectic mix of products. First a neutral daytime look followed by mini fish’n’ships (no typo, they were hugeo) with wines and topped off with the pro frosting our eyes with some serious gold glitter*. You know how I feel about gold so I had no hesitation in heading up to the chair for some of that! Since it was a special night I had even busted out the gold jeans, ha! Check back tomorrow to see the full look.
There were even some gifts to take home including the nail varnish I had layered on in yesterday’s post. Not satisfied that we’d had enough fun (which believe me we had!), the mother-in-law delighted us with the magic ‘pull-a-scarf-out-a-sleeve’ trick and yet another ride in the elevator. I have a fear my friends. Borderline freak right here. It’s the doors that particularly terrify me and this little beauty had 2 sets, one at each end. No. Where. To. Hide. (Lightened somewhat by seeing the sister-in-laws new pink eyebrows in the harsh elevator light!)
So really I have no excuse for not being perfectly made up from now on, I have the tools and the tricks. Maybe just not the time!
*You know those emails you get from Mr Zaboscammerolo where he has a million dollars of inheritance for you? Well, today I received a mail from his cousin offering to transfer me $100,000,000 and, wait for it, 75kg of gold dust. He just needs my bank details. Not gonna lie, a little bit tempted…
